Julio Urias, Kendall Graveman and more streaming options for Wednesday 5/3/17

New, comment

Julio Urias looks to make his second start this season, so get ready to be impressed.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

A lot of promising young stars are set to make starts on Wednesday. A couple of these guys missed the list today, including Antonio Senzatela who has been very good for the Rockies this year. He is pitching against the Padres today at Petco Park, so he could be set to have another solid outing for the Rockies tonight.

Julio Urias vs. San Francisco Giants (56.3% Owned)

2017: 5.2 IP, 1.59 ERA, 3.71 FIP, 6.35 K/9, 6.35 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, .211 AVG
Career vs. Active Giants: .227/.333/.318, 1 HR, 51 PA
Career @ Dodger Stadium: .268/.339/.342, 0 HR, 167 PA

Urias looks to make his second start of the season against the Giants Wednesday. He has been very good against the Giants in the past, and he is pitching in a stadium in which he has yet to give up a home run. Urias will probably not be available in most leagues in the next week once he makes one or two more starts. If he is still on the market, go ahead and pick him up now as he can help your team not only for Wednesday but throughout the year.

Kendall Graveman @ Minnesota Twins (49.8% Owned)

2017: 24.0 IP, 2.25 ERA, 4.05 FIP, 6.00 K/9, 1.88 BB/9, 1.13 HR/9, .221 AVG
Career vs Active Twins: .204/.286/.224/, 0 HR, 55 PA
Career @ Target Field: .130/.259/.174, 0 HR, 27 PA

Graveman has been very good for the Athletics this year, mostly due to his ability to produce ground balls with soft contact. Graveman is going up against a Twins team that he has absolutely dominated throughout the years. He has been very good while pitching at Target Field over his career, and he will look to continue his dominance against the Twins on Wednesday.

Adam Conley @ Tampa Bay Rays (4.2% Owned)

2017: 19.2 IP, 6.86 ERA, 5.04 FIP, 7.32 K/9, 4.58 BB/9, 1.37 HR/9, .234 AVG
Career vs. Active Rays: .286/.385/.667, 2 HR, 25 PA
Career @ Tropicana Field: .227/.308/.455, 1 HR, 26 PA

I added Conley to this list because the Rays have struggled against left-handed pitching this season. They have hit .230/.343.344 over 314 plate appearances against southpaws this year . If you are looking at picking up Conley, be warned that his career 41.3 FB% could be his downfall against a pretty good power hitting team that plays at Tropicana Field. Conley makes for an interesting option for Wednesday as high risk, high reward pick.

Dreamers

Nathan Karns vs. Chicago White Sox (1.7% Owned)

2017: 23.0 IP, 6.26 ERA, 6.05 FIP, 7.43 K/9, 3.52 BB/9, 2.35 HR/9, .270 AVG
Career vs. Active White Sox: .276/.323/.569, 4 HR, 62 PA
Career @ Kauffman Stadium: .271/.308/.479, 2 HR, 52 PA

Karns struggled his last outing against the White Sox by giving up 4 runs in 6 innings. Karns will face the White Sox again on Wednesday, and it probably will not be much better than last time he faced them. He has pitched very poorly at Kauffman Stadium, and due to his poor stats over the past 3 seasons I would recommend staying away from Karns in 2017.
